Liverpool query EPL's global TV rights

7:14 am on 14 October 2011

The Liverpool football club has called for England's top Premier League clubs to be allowed to sell overseas television rights individually.

The world's richest football league currently sells its international television rights as a joint package, worth $6.3 billion for the four-year period to 2013, with the proceeds shared equally across all 20 clubs.

But Liverpool's managing director Ian Ayre argues that higher profile teams should be given a bigger slice of the proceeds as they generate more interest in regions such as Asia.
